(Newser) – A 6.1-magnitude aftershock struck Chile in the past hour, further jangling nerves on a day when the government mistakenly issued tsunami warnings for coastal areas still sorting out the effects of last week’s 8.8 earthquake. President Michelle Bachelet took to the airwaves today to reassure the nation, the BBC reports. “There is enough food and therefore we must remain calm,” she said. “There is also enough fuel, there is no risk of shortages.”
